Real Estate Licensing

5 Replies

I’ve read and heard quite a bit about the advantages of having a RE license when searching for and procuring rental and rehab properties. I’m currently enrolled in an online RE course, but this particular course doesn’t feel as thorough as it should be when explaining certain concepts. It’s actually quite repetitive in that it relies a lot on the definitions of related concepts or just the terminology to define the concept that should be being explained. Does anyone have any advice as to better or supplemental material for licensing exam preparation? I don’t feel I’ll be ready by the end of this course alone.

In real estate licensing school, they basically teach you how to stay out of jail. When you get your license that is when you begin learning how to do the job.

In the meantime, you can read a book called The Millionaire Real Estate Agent by Gary Keller and listen to real estate agent specific podcasts to start preparing for your career before you get your license.

@Suny Capezzuto I went through Burk Baker Real Estate and Appraisal School based out of Baton Rouge. The owner studied business law at LSU and opened the RE school after.
